Megan and Craig | Engagement

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Megan and Craig are engaged now! Craig proposed to Megan up at Bonclarken, in Flat Rock, NC. Megan spent many summers there at camps growing up and then shared the experience with Craig working as counselors at Camp Joy.

Craig lives in Greenville so we went over to a few parks around downtown.

There was an awesome tree, with red peeling bark, that we had to take photos in front of.

Megan is from Gastonia where they make the awesome soda, Sun Drop. We went into the Mast General Store downtown and picked up some Sun Drops.

There is a rose garden at the top of Cleveland St. that is really pretty. It was especially pretty because the sun was going down right behind us. I love getting shots with some leaves in them, it makes the scene look a little more like a special secret moment in a fairy tale.

We had to get pictures in front of the sculpture at Falls Park, because it carries some fun significance to their relationship. Craig took Megan on a date in downtown Greenville, and they took a stroll around the park. When they came to the art piece, Craig, ever the chemistry nerd, asked “What does that look like to you?” Megan, the innocent school teacher said, “a child playing in the park.” The next part really defines their relationship, and tells how fun they really are…Craig spelled out, somewhat boisterously, “W-R-O-N-G, wrong! It’s a 2,3-dimethyl butane!” which is an organic chemical name, that most of us wouldn’t recognize. 🙂  It’s a story their friends have heard countless times, and now refer to that sculpture as the “W-R-O-N-G” sculpture, or, for those of us able to remember, “2,3- dimethyl butane” sculpture. Either way, it provides a unique place with a unique name, and a fun story, that will always make you laugh, and most importantly, a special place for pictures!

I get these cravings sometimes to just go out and take pictures. So… I grabbed Megan and Craig and we went downtown Greenville to take a few photos.

They are starting to look like each other. That always happens when you get married. 🙂

I love blue-gray doors! I’m always excited to find some!

Craig is the biggest Microsoft fan you will ever find. Megan likes to tease Craig and tell him that she loves Apple over Microsoft. We had to stop by the Apple store of course.

There is a small wooden bench with some pretty drapes in the window in front of the Hampton Inn which provided a fun backdrop.

Craig found a flower that was sitting in a flower pot in the middle of an empty field.

We visited the Children’s Garden and goofed off there for a bit.

And we finish with an “awwww.” 🙂
